Since summer is fast approaching and grabbing the best beauty products can be difficult, I’ve created a series of posts that will help you slay your makeup, hair, and skincare game! In this post, I’ve included some of my new favorite makeup and nail trends that I think you’ll absolutely love. With these colors, you’ll be beach ready in no time!
Here are some of my favorite makeup and nail products for summer 2017 (you can shop from it):
Today, I’m reviewing a new hair color line I’ve recently discovered: L’OREAL Paris Colorista! If you’ve been following me on Instagram for the last few months, you may know that I’ve been trying out a couple of different colors from this line. I’ve been trying to get a good idea of its lasting power and color pay off. I think it’s fair to mention that the Colorista hair dyes are not created equal. Some definitely last longer than others.
Before I go any further, I need to explain my hair situation. I have thick, fine, curly hair that has been highlighted, which is why the color shows up on the ends of my hair and not my roots. If you have brunette hair, they have a line of Colorista hair dyes made specifically for you. Since I have only tried the colors for blondes, I don’t know how long those dyes last. Ok, moving on!
After trying a multitude of different hair colors from BLEACH LONDON and having to dye my hair every week to keep my color, I knew that I needed a change in my routine. Once I heard about the Colorista Hair Dyes, I used their Wash Out Shampoo to get the pink out of my hair. WARNING: DO NOT USE THIS if you don’t want to bleach your hair! I had no idea that this product contained peroxide since it is not mentioned on the box and it damaged my hair!
After the pink was washed out, I began dying my hair with the Purple dye. I left it on my damp hair for about 30 minutes without mixing in any conditioner.
Here’s what my hair looked like after I styled it (Forgive the camera quality. I used my iPhone):

Today, I’m showing you the fourth installment of my INSTAGRAM RECAP series! It’s a little late because my semester just started, and I’ve been buried under a mountain of homework. (Seriously, why do professors do that to us?) Even though I haven’t been the best poster as of late, I have a few exciting ideas that I’m working on!
Now, without further ado, here are my most popular Instagram posts from the month of August:
If you have been reading my blog for a while, you may know that back in June I permanently dyed my hair pastel pink! I had been waiting to do it for a long time, and it was definitely worth the wait! Even though in the beginning it was everything I hoped it would be, unfortunately, the color didn’t last as long as I had hoped. Within a month or so I noticed a huge difference and it had almost returned to blonde. As a result, I decided that it was time to try out some semi-permanent options. That’s when I discovered my new beauty obsession: BLEACH LONDON!
Here’s my hair after I dyed and styled it:
